Celebrating 20+ Concordia Cultures

Our Concordia parents have pulled off again- the best international celebration.   The Concordia culture and community can always be found at the annual International Festival on campus. On this special day, students are given a free dress day to wear clothing from their home country.  The students have a chance to visit booths set up by our parents that share a fun educational experience about that specific country. Along with many other long established booths, new countries represented this year included Russia, Laos, Taiwan, Peru, Costa Rica, Ireland, and Poland. Thank you to our wonderful parents for a rich cultural celebration!

Concordia Makes A Difference!

Walk-A-Thon 2017 by Student Writer, Gracie Byun

The Concordia Walk-A-Thon is an annual fundraising event that invites all of the Concordia community– students of all grades, the faculty members, and the loving parents. This year, Concordia collaborated with Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, which is an organization in Vietnam that works with children in crisis. The Concordia students earned donations by asking their community members for sponsors to support them. Concordia’s overall goal for the donation is 125,000,000 VND to support Blue Dragon’s future charity projects to help the children that are in great need. This fun and influential tradition at Concordia not only builds community and promotes physical health, but also inspires students for service action.

Hanoi's First-Ever World University Fair

The first Concordia World University Fair was hosted on March 20. University admission representatives from about 30 universities around the world came to interact with students interested in learning about universities outside of Vietnam. After two sessions of various workshops, students made visits to the tables representing different universities. Students were engaged in conversations with the university admission representatives, as they asked questions and gathered information about the universities of their interest. With Concordia’s first graduating students this year, this event was significant because it showed how Concordia has strengthened in academic values. As Concordia is growing bigger in student body each year, more opportunities for students to be proactive in their own education are provided.

Economics Field Trip for Grade 2

As part of the Economics unit of study, Grade 2 had a chance to put our learning in action by visiting local businesses. First, we went to Deaf Craft 5 Colors, a social enterprise that employs deaf and hard of hearing persons and trains them to create special crafts. Our students then learned how a business can also make money while building a better community at the same time.  The next community business we visited was Family Medical Practice where students learned the differences between Services and Goods.  To really top off the economics field trip, students took a tour of Hanoi’s Old Quarter on Electric Vehicles to learn what types of goods are sold in Vietnam.  What an educational field trip!

Da Lat Interim

The stunning City of Da Lat is often referred to as the garden of Vietnam due to the large amount of sought-after produce grown there, making it a cool and quiet retreat from the bustling capital city of Hanoi.  In the mountains of southern Vietnam, Concordia students engaged in an adventure course of orienteering, biking, trekking, and team building activities, in the mountains of south Vietnam.  The pine woods and mountainous surroundings were the perfect backdrop for fresh air, outdoor activities, and getting to know each other better.

Sapa Interim

by Student Writer Stephen Reed, G7

Seventh grade students enjoyed an adventure in the mountains near the China border.  It included bike rides, an overnight train ride, visits to a local ethnic market, a celebration of our teacher, Mr. Snider’s 40th birthday.  We celebrated by roasting marshmallows by the bonfire, and a whole lot of hiking! It took 4.5 hours to hike to our next homestay but we were rewarded with a karaoke party that night in the village. It had rained the previous night so the trails were muddy and very slippery which made our hike back up the valley a challenge.  In the end, we learned plenty about how local people live in harsh conditions and really enjoyed being outdoors bonding with our classmates during our Interim trip to Northern Vietnam.
